Art and Interiors: Abstracts

My love of abstract art is no secret.  I love the colors and movement of the paintings like the one in Kelly Wearstler's home above.  I think a lot of people see abstract art as just paint slapped on a canvas but a lot of thought usually goes into the work.  Abstract Expressionist artist Joan Mitchell once said, "The freedom in my work is quite controlled, I don't close my eyes and hope for the best."  It's also clear from these examples that they can add life to any room.  I especially love abstract paintings from the 1960's mixed with furniture from the 18th-century.  Don't forget to visit the Abstract Expressionist exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art to learn more!
